Fox Soccer Jamaica Reveals Re-Distribution Costs
If you were a cable company and you wanted to redistribute the Fox Soccer Channel feed on your local satellite network, how much do you think it’d cost?
Well over in Jamaica, cable company SportsMax Limited is paying $300,000-$400,000 per year for the rights. The channel recently launched Fox Soccer Channel Jamaica, which broadcasts much of what we’re accustomed to seeing on Fox, but they also provide cricket plus other programming on the network.
More information about the deal is provided by The Jamaica Observer.
